Dome of Light

After the great views of the Kaohsiung harbor and city, plus dodging the rain, we headed back to the MRT. I’d seen a few photos of the Dome of Light installation at the Formosa blvd station, but it was even more amazing than I’d expected. It’s a good thing that the D700 is somewhat water proof because I couldn’t help but drool when seeing the glowing lights beckoning me to its beauty. Luckily I’d packed my ultra wide 12-24 lens and my mini tripod. I spent a good amount of time trying different exposures and angles. Lily was shooting like mad too. Actually people were coming by and shooting the whole time. Some with pro cameras and tripods but who were using flash. That sorta shocked me but whatever. It’s quite the popular spot and for good reason. It’s the largest public art installation made from individual pieces of colored glass. You can find more information about it on the Taiwan travel site. It was designed by Italian artist Narcissus Quagliata and took four years to complete. It tells the story of human life in four chronologically arranged themes. Go the travel site or Wikipedia for more info.
